Chernobyl/Simpsons crossover memes were not something I knew I needed but are providing me with great joy
Confirmed 100% sensationalism by a website that ranks its status as “Unknown.”Answering my own question: confirmed 100% Hollywood sensationalism, as all the historical experts initially asserted. Very irresponsible of this otherwise very well researched show to double down on that pernicious rumor.
HBO's limited series "Chernobyl" revived interest in the nuclear accident — along with claims about a "Bridge of Death" and the fate of its residents.www.truthorfiction.com
I'm the same, call it a blissful ignorance but I just watch a show to enjoy it, not pick it apart until I ruin it for myself. I lost interest in other people's opinion after Game of Thrones, the shit people spouted was embarrassing.
Is era better then? Because if it is I sure as shit don't need to be going to the other two.I can't fucking stand the way Reddit and YouTube watches and discusses shows, movies, or whatever media. They are dens of cynicism, nhilism, and excessive over analysis.
Give me the most obnoxiously sentimental and earnest analysis any day over punchy ironic spicy takes with a superiority complex over compensating for deep insecurities.
I've tried not to be the no fun police but we're discussing it so that's my feelings.
(I don't think you are a bad person for laughing at a meme, to be clear.)
Dyatlov's version of events shows him to be way more fastidious about safety protocols and calm than other testimonies have painted him. His statement is recorded here, it's an interesting watch.
I don't frequent many OTs here either lol, the internet in general is a bit of a post modern ironic hell hole.
There's a lot written at link, they discuss the rumor from a lot of different angles. It seems like an urban legend that started right after the accident and persists to this day. I would love to see firmer evidence one way or the other, but it doesn't exist. I find the discussion at that link plenty persuasive however.
its odd to me that the show would manage to find out that the 3 water drainers are not actually all dead contrary to popular opinion, but then make something up in its entirety and then double down on it in the end.There's a lot written at link, they discuss the rumor from a lot of different angles.

Yes. Italy held a series of referendums following the incident and all power plants were subsequently shut down. Sweden had already held a non-binding referendum following the 1979 Harrisburg incident, in which the question was not if but rather how we should phase out nuclear power. So discussions were already taking place - and still are to this day.
How serious? Some countries are phasing out nuclear power because of the three major nuclear incidents. To me it's unfortunate, especially when you look at the newest tech.
I wonder how many deaths can be contributed to coal fired power stations
